Training: Optimal Design For Multiple Devices using Adobe Captivate

Topic: Optimal Design For Multiple Devices using Adobe Captivate

Date and time: Thursday, July 10, 2014 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM US/Pacific

Description: In 2013, the sale of smartphones exceeded the sale of traditional phones while the sale of tablets exceeded those of standard PCs. This trend has lead to more clients who want online courses that can be accessed from both mobile and desktop devices. Because the technology is different, developing courses for both devices have unique attributes. The dilemma is – do we develop two separate courses that contain the same material but are published on different devices? Who wants to update the same course twice? So the approach then, is to craft a single course that provides optimal viewing and an effective learning experience across a wide range of devices. Anita Horsley and Karen Blades will present how to develop eLearning/mLearning course that have a professional look and feel, and provide an effective learning environment for students. This presentation is geared toward designers and non-designers alike to improve learning objectives using successful design techniques when publishing to both mobile and desktop devices.

New to eLearning? Try Adobe Captivate 8!

Guest post by Coline Son Lee, Principal & Learning Strategist at Everest CS, Orange County, CA

How Adobe has broken the entry barrier to developing eLearning with a more powerful and responsive product!

As an eLearning developer, I am often asked by others considering making the leap from developing instructor-led training (ILT) to eLearning what is the “best” tool to learn/use. And this loaded question is often narrowed down to two options – Captivate or …?

CaptivateBoxShotMy response isn’t usually a simple one. I take the time to peel back the layers of their motivation to uncover and understand what the originator of the question is trying to accomplish. Will eLearning benefit your organization? What resources (budget, time, talent) are or will be dedicated to this endeavor? Once we get past this step of verifying the business case for eLearning, my recommendation is to take the plunge and learn Adobe Captivate.

A Robust Tool That Sets You Up for Success!

To help them understand my recommendation I use the analogy that using Captivate is like driving a “stick shift” or manual transmission car. Stick shift transmissions give drivers more control over the car’s power and fuel economy. Plus – once you learn to drive a “stick”, you pretty much set yourself up to drive any type of car. However, the same isn’t usually true when you do it in the reverse. Going from automatic to manual requires a new learning curve as the driver fumbles with the clutch to control the car. Likewise, there are many rapid development tools available for eLearning development, with varying levels of ease-of-learning, but like my car analogy, if you develop your skills with a robust tool such as Captivate, transitioning to any other tool is a breeze and development in a broad sense, more intuitive.

Captivate 8’s Street Cred Continue reading…

Adobe Captivate 8 Reimagines Responsive eLearning for a Multi-device World

ResponsiveIn the web world, being responsive has become a norm. It’s considered uncool if you don’t have your website mobile- or tablet-friendly. As much as we have been trying to make our eLearning courses responsive, we have been facing a lot of challenges all these years. The main challenge is that an eLearning course is not like a big long web page that you need to make responsive. In eLearning courses, you are dealing with screen/slide based approach, which are essentially of fixed width and height. Also, the elements in an eLearning course are more complex than a web page. A web page carries text and images, and sometimes audio, video, and animations. But an eLearning course has a timeline-based approach, with objects appearing/disappearing based on timing or click of a button. There are interactive objects, overlay objects, embedded content, assessment questions, simulations, and playbar, besides the other media elements.
